To help some bloggers and members of the media in the Philippines see some of the features of the newly launched Nokia Lumia devices, Nokia hosted an event called, “Tickets to Amazing.” Guests were treated to an adventure of their choice: Aqua, Appetizing, or Aero. Guests can share their photos or talk about their adventure using Nokia Lumia phones.
